fresh as the moment when the pod went pop :)

Was it worth
Five sweaty minutes
With all those lads
On car bonnets
And stony grit floor
The scraped knees
Bruising gropes
Fumbling fingers

Tried out by twelve good men
Well, not that good
Not one will pay
And sentenced to nine months
Hard labour
No time off for good behaviour
And a further eighteen years
Of imprisonment just for the hell of it.

Dunno, ask me again, in a few weeks.

Isn't it incredible that every one of us humans arrived on this planet the same way, all curled up inside someone's belly?

I work with pregnant women a lot, and also work as a doula from time to time (attending births). It's always so miraculous, it's always so normal.

Incredible whenever I remember that the portal into this world is someone's fanny. Wow.

I take it you know her, and she's not just a stranger parading around the streets in her panties? If so, what relation is she to you, and to whom may we offer words of luck for a safe & healthy birth and words of congratulations when the time comes?

Wow! She looks READY.

I was in Central Park this weekend and a similarly pregnant woman walked past me. I marveled that she could even balance well enough to get around. Seems like it would be hard on the back!

WOW! This speaks volumes! I love the colors, shapes and textures. Plus, the mysterious soon-to-be mommy!

Oh I love this photo. I too find it miraculous to think that we can grow another human being inside our bodies. I am a trained Active Birth Teacher and Baby Massage instructor and taught pregnant mums for years. I also have had 3 of my own and yet I still think pregnancy is so special that the very sight of this photo brought tears to my eyes. Thanks Poddy :-)

mentally grimmacing too..... (without even being a Corrie watcher)


(btw, yes, do look out Neil Gaiman, wonderful writing)


And I love this photo, makes me smile and cry at the same time.

I notice, though, pink knickers. Is this a theme emerging?

btw, I'd race Donna to get to those buttons.


(just joking, i know how to share)


I have some of my Nan's old buttons, she used to have them in a quality st. tin too.... Did everyone's Nan, d'you think?

none of my comments ever make it onto this site.

i used ot sleep on a shag carpet-rug like this when i was little. i think it;s still in the folks' room. the thing collects dust like you wouldn't believe. not at all comfortable. but it wasn't all polar bear of nottin' like this. it was a rainbow of colors....a raindbow of grays, dark grays, and dark browns.

speaking of polar bears, i wonder if this preg woman killed and skinned the bear? my old prof. knew the son of the last person in greenland who killed a polar bear witha knife. he lured it in close and then ducked down witha knife extended when it jumped...kinda suicidal, which is why it was just a rare thing and doesn't happen anymore.

but yeah, carpets. the prof i was talking about was in charge of polar bear conservation. he went to greenland every year in a kayak. wrote tons of books on the place...all in danish. he was in charge of tagging the population. shot them with darts full of something clalled "blue heaven." like special k for horses but it is for polar bears,,,,sold on the streets of christiania. when he got hungry, he ate a few bears. interesting conservationist. most bears (the thin and violent ones) have parasites that will likely kill you if you eat them. it happened to him. he should have known better but he was really only an architect who was teaching students, tagging bears, and eating endagered speciest in his spare time.

but yeah, carpet, bears, preg. yeah. wonder if this kid will grow up and kill a polar bear. that's what life is. kill or be killed. right? or kill, eat, and suffer with parasites for the rest of your life.
watch out for those thing, will ya?

What a great title!

Not that I don't think childbirth is wonderful, but I must admit this photo is just not appealing to me - maybe because I'm totally gay or something?

Her feet look squirmy and a bit uncomfortable with being so exposed. Lovely photo. Hello - just dropping by to say gooday. Hope you are fine and dandy xxx

PS: I dislocated the base of my spine - that's why I was hobbling around so much - it all clicked and clanked around finally and popped back in like a bag of disobedient spanners - hideous xxx

INCKLE - yes tis a friend, but no offence taken my friend!

DWIN - what goes up must come down!

REYA - i constantly marvel at such a miracle. i treat lots of preggers ladies and babies. it is an honour to work with such rapidly changing and energetic forces. your comment has made me a think a little more, and inspired a little poem which i may post. and oh how eloquently put that our portal here is via a fanny ;0p

JOSE - she is a friend of mine. very pretty indeed. she is a module infact

STE - she was a bit over ripe. i helped her along a bit. it is incredible what the body can take. it amazes me daily at work. and yes, i can imagine having great conversations with james at a party....

HHB - pop!

ZIPSTER - thanks love x

DONS - ah bless ya. i know what you mean. when i treat newborns i often get a bit tearful (but i hold in coz i am a bloke and all). you have to communicate on a totally different level ie. without words. it is very special x

LETTY - any recommendations for neil books? yes there seems to be pink knickers aplenty at the mo! there were hundreds of buttons, so we could all get together and sit on the floor and tip them all out and pick one each until they were all gone. have you seen 'breakfast on pluto'?. he sticthes loads of buttons on his jumper in that. i would do the same probably. address is on the way! ;0p

RAINDOG - she did very well, bless her!

FN - i know! fit to burst indeed! ;0p

JAZZY - yes, you can hardly tell it is actually me, can you? ;0p

ROBERT - tis a joyous sight! hope you have a happy day too! ;0)

JA - oh no! i don't like to think that i'm not getting your excellent comments. bloody blogger!! keep trying though please. yes these rigs are home to a plethora of bugs and diseases. death traps!! perhaps your folks made you sleep on one in an attempt to bump you off without it looking obvious? i don't know if the bairn will kill a polar bear, but she certainly has that murderous glint in her eye. we shall see.....

STARSOFT - i hear she blew herself all the way to perth!! glad you like the kegs ;0p

MA - ta x

ALBI - dig the wig! nice to meet you ;0)

JD - yes it is. totally ;0p

CHED - well done!

WENDZ - do you mean you got piles? the tissue teeth (ha ha) are drawstrings on the dress x

EARITH - good to see you!

BOB - i bet you'd look good in some too?

TRIJN - thanks! you can call me daddy if you would like, but sadly this pod is not mine ;0(

LETTIE AND CO - aah! i am touched. how lovely to think of me! i wish i were there to do the squeezing in person!! love yall back x x x

ROMO - well look who it ain't!! the old bag of old spanners herself! i am honoured to be in your presence. i am toot sweet love. glad you are sorted, though i wish twas me that fiddled wiv the spanners! ;0p

Quite surprised at the body language expressed by the feet here. Shy? Unconfortable?
I would have loved to see her proud, both feet well planted in the ground.

The carpet is out of this world. Had no idea there were still any of those around: SOOOO SEVENTIES!!! (but then, seventies are back in fashion aren't they?)
